“Our new Global Service Center is a big deal for us because it represents a significant investment in our people, in our customers and in our Greenville community. We are excited because we have been able to greatly expand both our workforce and operations in Greenville,” said Nana Baffour, Getronics Chairman and Group CEO. “Our new state-of-the-art facilities will support not only our associates but greatly enhance our ability to support Getronics clients throughout North America and the rest of the world. For many years Greenville has been both a wonderful community for us and home to our associates. All of us share the excitement for the commitment being made here that Greenville will continue to be one of our homes and communities for years to come.”
